The Cougars can see the .500 line again after taking care of Trinity (Whiteville) twice this week on back-to-back days to improve to 12-13 on the season.

After dropping their last three, the Cougars snapped back into form outscoring the Raiders 17-0 in two games.

On Monday, it was a comfortable 7-0 road win for Grayson where Cain Smith took over on the mound. He pitched a complete game on only 78 pitches, allowing just four hits with nine strikeouts and no walks.

Grayson scored once in the top of the first, and Smith took it from there. Ryan Johnson was the top batter on the night going two-for-four with three RBIs while also scoring one run.

On Tuesday, the Cougars got the job done even quicker defeating Trinity in five at home.

This time around it was Alex Scott who dominated on the mound, going the complete game while allowing just two hits on 50 pitches.

Scott's pitching came on top of a great offensive showing where they outhit the Raiders 11-2.

Grayson kicked off the game putting five runs in the bottom of the first to set the tone on the game. From there, the Cougars added two in the second, two in the fourth and got their 10th run in the bottom of the fifth to end the game by the mercy rule.

Damon Simon ended the game hitting a double online drive to right field that brought Johnson in to get the margin right at 10. Smith brought his bat to the second game, going three-for-three runs, and Andrew Haycraft led the team driving in two runs in the game.

The two wins also brought a huge significance in the district seeding race with Grayson improving its record to 3-2.

The Cougars were supposed to be in action on Thursday versus Warren Central, but the game was canceled due to rain.
